Opened a shop on Etsy!

Just last night I finally opened my first ever shop with Etsy! With only a humble 12 listings at present, I can't wait to see this baby take off! Just needing a bit more time to make all the things I want to! I'm selling my fashion, jewellery, millinery and fashion illustrations.

At present I'm juggling 3 jobs and studying full time, loving running the Textile's course which has almost finished now, and am very grateful that everything I do/study is related somehow to fashion and art. "Happiness is Gratitude"

Styling a shoot with Photographer Israel and MUA Sylvana

Had a blast working for the first time with photographer Israel Baldago  and MUA Sylvana styling the shoot with garments, jewellery and accessories to suit Sylvana's looks for the SA Hair and Beauty Competition the same day at the Hilton Hotel, Adelaide.

It was great fun to use all my new accessories I've been sourcing at last and test them out with different looks.
I tried everything from Victoriana Goth, to a Tribal Bellydancer to a Goddess and a femme fatale.

Good fun!

Textiles and Garment Sewing Class 2014!

Really happy to be running the Textiles Course at Seaford Community Centre for a THIRD time now! This time including a Garment Sewing Component at the end. I have a class of 10 lovely, motivated students and I can't wait to see their progress.

Many thanks to everyone who helped get the word out about the course, otherwise it wouldn't have happened without enough enrolments. If you are interested in enrolling next time, keep an eye on my business page by liking it and keep in the loop for the next term of Sewing and Textiles!
